Items of the week

  • Node.js - we could get an object describing the memory usage of a Node.js process using process.memoryUsage(). The numbers returned represent the usage in bytes, as described in the official documentation page.

  • Design - a content is what a user needs right now, regardless of what a search form is designed for. If it’s not feasible to have a universal search, label a search form explicitly, e.g. Search products. Got that from chapter 6 of Form Design Patterns.

  • On the week 48 of 2021, AWS announced the preview of EC2 M1 Mac instances. There is an official blog post on this with details on pricing and example usage.

This is a weekly bite-sized post on web app development from JavaScript to UX and technology in general. Thank you for reading and have a nice day!
